About Me

My photo
I'm a Guilford College graduate with a B.S. in Criminal Justice; I minored in Visual Arts Photography. My blog tracks the highs and lows of my experience in a Film Photography course during the Spring of 2013 and up to the present, as I delve into digital photography. I may even include other mediums of art such as acrylic paint, graphite drawings, etc. I'll talk about my experiences snapping photos or simply snapping from frustration as well as my successes and failures, tips and tricks that I've learned, and exploring the photography/art world through the lens of a Black woman.

Can't Win For Losing

I snapped today. No, not photos. I mentally snapped. I woke up early, used up my gas, and drove all of the way to my classmates daycare to take pictures. When I got there, I discovered that my lens was BROKEN. My focus knob was not budging for anything at all. I couldn't adjust my meter or focus my lens. Talk about being infuriated. I currently don't have the money to get a new lens or get mine repaired.
Also, I'm on a time crunch... I have to take pictures when I can and we have to have a roll and print due this Thursday. My professor gave me a loaner lens; tomorrow morning, I'm going all of the way back to the daycare to try at it again. Then I'll have to wake up early Thursday morning to develop and try to make a print. I'd try to develop and make a print on Wednesday, but I'm busy from 1pm-10pm on Wednesdays. Can I just say... I'm over this week ALREADY >_>.
Oh, and let me not forget about how I accidentally bought 24 exposure film instead of 36, which is what my camera holds. I just really can't win for losing. Now, I have to return that film and buy the correct film. I have to do all of this expeditiously on a budget of... $7. I have to buy more paper soon, too! I'm legit over all of this.
